I started this on my window sill 3 years ago. It was a lot bigger than current photo, had to cut off dying. The stems are drying up and dying. I did transplant and moved it from back yard (hotter) to front porch. Gets morning sun and we’re in Vegas so it’s hot and this happened in July, but didn’t happen in prior summer or for 5 months or so on porch, but when got hot it did this? Not sure. Also noticed that roots were exposed at top. Not sure if soil settled or if roots were searching for water. I’m really good about watering several times per week in the summer. Yes I use good organic cactus soil. Photo is of a spot where this starts to happen. I have other stems that seem to wilt mid stem
